success. you know, they are talking about -- president obama is talking about a tax increase. there are two of things wrong with that. one is that i happen to know where the money goes. and secondly, raising taxes on people is not the answer in washington. i was there when we balance the budget in 1997. and we cut taxes. we did not raise taxes. to give them more money, they will spend it. it will hurt malkin -- small businesses and hurt our ability to create jobs. that is why so many small business people have been paralyzed. and then come the regulations. a small business person, man or woman, it needs to be treated like a delicate flower. you have got to water it, you have got to take care of it called a little loving care. you do not crotchet by somebody that does not understand small business -- you do not crotchet. it is hard to start. it is hard to keep it going. but small business is the engine of economic growth. it is where we get our jobs from. yet, we have all these people in washington who give us this top- down approach to how we will grow jobs. and it is really
, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it harder for small businesses to hire. and replace it with reforms that actually the work costs and protect the doctor-patient -- lowers costs and protects the doctor-patient relationship. and instead of getting into high gas and energy prices, let's jump start the development of america's vast domestic energy resources. let's build the keystone pipeline. let's expand the exploration and use of natural gas and coal. these are all good ideas that mitt romney supports. the president obama has ignored or rejected. that is disappointing, especially considering how his policies have failed. he promised to listen. he promised us change. but all we have got is more of the same. more spending, more red tape, more debt and decline. a loss of hope. the united states senate, run by the president's party, has not passed a budget in more th
and more taxes? or is our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and more freedom? i believe in mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i vote
to cut tax rates and pay for it by closing loopholes. two. he wants to increase defense spending by about $2 trillion over ten years. and three, he says he'll balance the budget at the end of his second term. let's start with the tax cuts. >> i want to bring down rates. want to bring the rates down, at the same time, lower deductions and credits so we keep getting the revenue we need. >> romney's across the board tax cut of 20% is $5 trillion worth. now, romney plans to close loophole to pay for it. we just don't know which wups, so we had to take some liberties on the map here. the joint committee on taxation did one test study and i have it right here. keep in mind, this was done based on current law, which assumes the bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year. they concluded that revenue neutral tax reform would permit a 4% decrease in all ordinary income tax rates. now, that's not close to 20%. now, let's get to the second thing. adding more than $2 trillion to defense spending. according to analysis conducted money, romney will add $2.1 trillion in defense spending over a decade. n
literally decades of research trying to lower at the extent to which measures like an earned income tax credit and temporary assistance for needy families, medicaid and education programs he will tell me if he is right. and their impact on people's lives. it is far from sucking the life out of them. i would argue that not only do these provisions critically offset multiple failures embed, did they provide people with the opportunities they need to achieve the vocation and faith that absence this support there are have a much harder time and cheating. i want to reflect on michael harrington and how big is the current economic divide and as a different now versus when he broke the other america. the economic divide is much lighter now than it was then. the most recent year was 2007. 23% of income accrued to the top 1%. back in the early '60s, that was 10%. he was writing about an economic divide where 10% occurred tuesday top 1%. hthe growth of inequality is a major factor of understanding in the quality. this is a dynamic story. it has great barrington area of agreement between charles a
. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of them will get the 12 million jobs in four years that they're promising? >> it would be a very good outcome. i think it's a long shot, frankly. >> your answer is smarter than mine. i said i'd wear a d
reduced taxes, and eliminate the death tax in ohio. the has been the biggest job trend in ohio and anywhere else in the nation. i think the governors are leading the change effort in this country, and have to continue to do that. but the federal government has been an impediment, in many cases, through its regulations and its headwinds. many in the state have predicted them from creating the jobs necessary in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are
tax revenues ever this year. the federal government as well as states and municipalities are said to take in a total of 602.4 billion euros, which beats earlier projections by almost 6 billion euros. the government says it will come close to balancing its budget next year. >> germany will pay out billions of tax reimbursements to foreign companies. that is in order to comply with a ruling from the european court of justice. >> the court found that foreign stockholders in germany paid too much in taxes on their dividends and ordered germany to rectify the situation. the payments are set to cost the treasury at least 3 billion euros. >> the german economics ministry has confirmed media reports that european and north african countries have begun negotiations on a mass of solar energy project in the sahara desert. >> the desert tech project would see solar energy produced in north africa and exported to europe. according to a german newspaper, a treaty could be signed by early next year. the first solar farm would be built in morocco. >> could the saharan son soon be powering europe
's easier to cut. you don't have to pay employment taxes or the other costs that go along with hiring a full-time employee. > > all right michael alter, notwithstanding what we have just been talking about, you did find that optimism was up. > > optimism came back up, and it came up significantly from september to october. it's now hovering around two-thirds being optimistic. the challenge is that two-thirds being optimistic is really where we have been every month in 2012 except for the month of september. so we're back to the norm for 2012 as opposed to a number like 90%, which is really where you need to see it for small businesses to be growing. > > when they're that optimistic, then they are hiring, they're expecting that orders will be coming in, and that's the kind of flourishing economy that they are looking for. > > right. to put it into perspective, small businesses are by definition glass-half- full people. they're going to be optimistic. that's why they're in business, and that's why they're taking on these bigger companies. so when optimism is 2-in-3 being optimistic about the f
about the electric sportscar funded with your tax dollars. >> remember the video of if is kerr karma going up in flames? there are reports hurricane sandy sparked fires in about 16 of the hybrid cars. they say they burned to the ground in new jersey after getting submerged in water. the auto maker says it is investigating. if if is kerr had a $25 million loan guarantee by the obama administration. >>> they have done more to help immigrants than americans. that is a report that will be given by the center fof immigration studies. 2 out of 3 million jobs went to legal and illegal immigrants. >>> hurricane sandy wiping out entire towns along the jersey shore. this is a look at the boardwalk in atlantic city. look at the before and the after. after sandy hit and before. many people at a loss for words of what was done to their homes and now they must rebuild along the jersey shore. at least 50 feet of the historic boardwalk taken out initially. jennifer davis is live with a look at the damage done there. >> good morning to you. it very much feels like there's a state of emergency in new
of the patriotism. you are not getting money to real producer to get jobs to market. when we pay taxes we are taking capt cament away and not helping the economy. >> we are talkug in the plan, it is period admits it would happen quay. we are buying you didn't build that economy . a president who sneers because you think you are so smart you can do it on your own and it is the idea of letting the government do it. >> and rick, we have seen it with the wind mills and it didn't work out. >> it is faulty. if you are going to build a building that you are renting space in for 75 to 100 years, do you amortize that. >> rick, rick, rick, the point is. the windmill program and started out with 7,000 jobs and it hasn't expand they have 300 billion and it is shrink not growing. >> those are two different pointings. >> not at all. it was part of the stimulus plan. >> they pointed out something. she's right. 12 million jobs no matter what. and governor romney -- >> and you are talking about an entirely different issue. >> not at all. >> it was part of the stimulus plan, rick, quickly though. >> it is not the sam
energy tax on all of our energy consumption. he didn't get that one through the senate. he got it through the house. and then he started regulating, and so if you're a manufacturer, if you're a small business, what do you see coming from washington? you see more regulation, more red tape, you see the promise of higher taxes, you see a government spending money it doesn't have, borrowing beyond its means, borrowing more money from countries like china to fund its government, which simply means we'll have a debt crisis just like europe. we can't afford four more years like these last four years. we can't stand for that. the president is not giving us much of a second term agenda. he's not staying here are my abc's. he put out astelic 20-page brochure the other day, but you don't have to read it to know where we're headed. we know that he's promising a $2 trillion tax increase starting in january. of the 21 tax increases just in obama care, 12 of them hit middle income taxpayers. remember when he stayed he wouldn't have a middle income tax increase? well, there are 12 episodes, 12 examples w
-point plan. those at the top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. they get to pay lower tax rates. outsource jobs, they want to let wall street run wild, make reckless bets with other folks' money. that was the philosophy as ceo, as governor, and as president clinton said, he does have a lot of class, but he's not talking about change. all he's offering is a big rerun of the same policies that created so much hardship for so many americans. and you know, governor romney has been out here making a lot of last-minute promises lately. said he's all about fighting for the middle class. said he would cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody, but the problem is we heard those promises before. keep in mind governor romney lives just a few miles south of here in the state of massachusetts. love massachusetts. but during governor romney's campaign for governor down there, he promised the same thing he's promising now. said he would fight for jobs and middle class families. but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefitted 278 of the wea
's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at end of the year. we have the sequester looming. that wouldn't be the right way to do thing, takes a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. after the election both democrats and republicans say this is something the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. >> congresscomwoman if the president wins will they have to budge to raise taxes for the super wealthy to take care the debt? >> i think it's interesting to listen to his comments. basically the president's ideas on how to deal with an economy are an empty binder, if you will. we have brought forward item after item and suggestion after suggestion and bill after bill. we've passed bipartisan legislation in the house, and the senate won't take it up. what we need to do is make certain that we extend the bush tax cuts. we also want to go about closing some of the loopholes and primarily we have to cut federal spending. federal spending is completely out of control and making some cuts into this baseline so that you're actually r

to continue to provide tax cuts for businesses like yours. but you don't see it coming? >> you know, what we've seen is the family owned business president obama has been clear on his views of the estate tax. we think one of the greatest things on the economy is allowing family owned businesses to remain family owned. impediments to that is an estate tax to backwards it forces family-owned businesses whether family farms or business like white castle to reconsider their structures in terms of how they can continue to be prosperus and give back to team members. we know it's something we call patient capitol to do the right thing by the team members and people because they're investing in the future, when you put a state tax into the mix that is not just policy for allowing family businesses to continue to grow. >> coming up where is maiga storm sandy headed next? a check on sandy's path, next. hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on an escalator. get happy. get geico. melons!!! oh yeah
there is a lot to be said for that. >> the president says he wants to continue to provide tax cuts for businesses like yours. but you don't see it coming? >> you know, what we've seen is the family owned business president obama has been clear on his views of the estate tax. we think one of the greatest things on the economy is allowing family owned businesses to remain family owned. impediments to that is an estate tax to backwards it forces family-owned businesses whether family farms or business like white castle to reconsider their structures in terms of how they can continue to be prosperus and give back to team members. we know it's something we call patient capitol to do the right thing by the team members and people because they're investing in the future, when you put a state tax into the mix that is not just policy for allowing family businesses to continue to grow. >> coming up where is maiga storm sandy headed next? >>> monster storm sandy, what is the latest, rick? >> last couple images here on the radar you can see that they just begin to fade off just a little bit. less precipitati
was that he favors a progressive tax policy, taxing those at the very highest rungs of income a little more to provide a little more help to those on the bottom rungs. "the des moines register" has now abandoned that as a reason for choosing a president. the editorial board has abandoned it in favor of this lie. there is not a lot of difference between the two candidates' short-term economic plans. four years ago, one of the biggest reasons "the des moines register" gave for endorsing president obama was expanding health insurance coverage to more americans will lessen the threat that illness will bring financial ruin. four years later, health insurance is not mentioned in their editorial endorsing the man who promises to repeal the obama expansion of health insurance that "the des moines register" advocated. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continu
of taxes. everybody's been talking about these swing states as if the tail can wag the dog. somehow if you win the swing states, you affect the whole rest of the country in doing so, when that's the residue. but if you spend all your advertising money and all your grassroots, all your social media, and you focus it all on ohio, that doesn't help you win in pennsylvania. it doesn't help you in minnesota or michigan. i'm wondering whether they got the thing wrong, possibly, the obama people, by putting all their faith in winning those seven states, or most of them. what do you think? >> i think that because of the electoral college, elections, presidential elections have to focus on swing states and have to focus on these emerging purple states, because as it turns out, the elections sometimes do hinge on them. this election does seem to hinge on these particular swing states. the reason why the polling is so confusing, chris, is because sometimes national polls don't take into effect the fact that we have an electoral college, don't take into effect that some of these swing states will be s

of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an economic crisis that we're still cleaning our way out of. so -- so we know what works and we know what doesn't. and governor romney now is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he is trying as hard as he can to repackage the same old ideas that didn't work and offer them up as change. he is saying he is the candidate of change, lo and behold. now here is the thing, though. we know what change looks like. and what governor romney is offering ain't it. giving more power to the biggest banks, that's not change. another $5 trillion tax cut to the wealthiest americans, that's not change. refusing to answer details about your policies until after the election, that's definitely not change. we've heard that from politicians before. >> again, a glimpse of the campaign speech the president has been giving to supporters all day
